According to the router docs, the <local> tag is for routing 'Unified
Domain-Wide Accounts', where you want all messages address to any address
in a given domain to be delivered to a single local account. The router
entry for that would be:

domain.tld = <local>local-account

'Unified Domain-Wide Accounts' is the only section in the docs where the
<local> tag is mentioned so, AFAIK, it has no other use. I'd guess that
since your router entry had an address alias with both local and domain
parts (<user@domain.tld>), SIMS got confused when it matched the address on
a router line that tried to map it to a unified domain-wide account.
